Original Poetry. AUSTRALIA'S NATIVE ROSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

Original Poetry. AUSTRALIA'S NATIVE ROSE. Loveliest flower of Flora's train, Dwelling in thy bowerjr home; Welcome is the sunny Vain Descending on thy lovely bloom. . Wild and lonely is tby bed, Sheltered from the scorching glare Modestly thou lift'st thy head, Beauteous virgin, sweet and fair. Blushing maiden too, thou art, Bound in Nature'8 homely grace ; Born in some sequestral part Of earth's dreary ragged face. In some golly lone and wild. Or beside the gentle stream ; Thou art meek as any child, Smiling at each flitting gleam. Anstral's floral child art thon, Sleeping where the skies grow pale; Sorrow's storms ne'er rack thy brow. Yet thon lov'et the teuder gale. When the son with searching eye Scans tliy shaded lowly bower, Beams of splendour wander by, Knowing not of thee, 0 flower I In the far end sunny West, In the days now past and gone. Oft I've pinned thee to my breast, Cheering me, a wanderer, on. Through the solitudes at morn, When the dewdrops glistened sweet, Oft I ...

A COSTLY AMUSEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

A COSTLY AMUSEMENT. It is hard to say how- much Sir Thos. Liptoa baa spent already in trying to "lift that cap." Shamrock I. cost £47,000 to build. That rendered a steam yaibt neces sary,- and the Erin cost another. £80,000, and £20,000 more to fit her op, not tosjieak of £25,000 a year spent on her mainten ance. This does not include the elaborate, lunches to 150 guests daily daring the last contest. Shamrock II. cost £50,000, the accident swallowed up another £4000, and the np-keep of the last three years must have been another £50,000. These items alone amount to £326,600, and the melting pot value of the oap fc about £17.

THE BALMAIN COAL MINE. Sydney Stock Journal. Chapter 4. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

THE BALMAIN COAL MING. Sydney Stock Journal. Chapter 4.. The idea of quoting Father Curran is a bit of a novelty, but, having once started on it, the results have pleased me greatly. He is a better writer than lam, and he understands the subject a great deal bet ter than I do; and it seems to me to be a wise thing to do. The object that I have in view is to set my readers to thinking, and to give them an idea of the real sig->. nificance of the finding of coal under Syd ney harbour. Commercially, it is a great event, of course, and scientifically it is wonderful; but the real interest of it all to me is the philosophical value. I have ideas about the world we live in that are a great deal different from those of the average.man, and this discovery of coal under the harbour comes into line with my thinking. But we'll; each see the event from our own point of view, and to each one of us the views of Father Curran will be of intense interest. That is my excuse for transcribing the r...

THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

THE HEAD OF THE HOUSE. When once a man has established a borne, bis moat important duties have fairly begun. The errors of youth may be overlooked; want of purpose, and evon of honor, in his earliest days, may be forgotten. But, from the moment of his marriage, he begins to write his indelible history—not by pen and ink, but by actions, by wbioh he must ever afterwards be reported and judged. His conduct at home; his solicitude for his family; the training of his children ; his de-. votion to hie wife ; bis regard for the great interest of eternity—these are ihe tests by whioh his worth will ever afterward be esti mated by all who think or care about bim. These will determine his position while liv ing, and influence his memory when dead. He uses well or ill the brief space allotted to bim out of all eternity to build up a character founded upon, the most solid of all foundations—private worth.

A SUNDAY MORNING SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

A SUNDAY MORNING SCENE. (by shootek.) ..The early morning's sun slowly rises among the lazily rustling gum trees ; a single church bell of the slow country town rings slowly and lazily on the lazy Sunday morning and a tired feeling seems to pervade the atmosphere generally, as. I lazily lean near the kitchen window talking to the tired servant, with just enough energy to keep the conversa tion from not dying away utterly. ■: The only things which seem to have energy are the incessantly squeaking chickens which' run: liear and there, squeaking with long drawn squeaks for their human mother's presence with their breakfast. They were hatched with patent incu-. bators. . .. " Do you like honey?" inquired the'ser vant, as she perceived me looking at ' the bee-hives down the yard. "I likeanythingsweet, Jane,"giving Iyer a " killing " glance which suffuses her pretty face with a gentle blush. " Don't you ?

PAYMENT BY CHEQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press — 4 December 1901

PAYMENT BY CHEQUE. An important decision was given on September 20 by Mr. Pitt Lewis, K.C., deputy judge of the City of London Court, during the hearing of a case respecting the distinction between payment by cheque and payment by cash. Two or three hun dred years ago, he said, it used to be held that it could not be regarded as payment in satisfaction tt5;offer £1 for a £5 debt. The House of Lords had corrected that, and said that, while giving a soveieign in i payment of £5 was no discharge, the banding over of a cheque for the smaller sum constituted "satisfaction.'' A cheque was a different instrument in law to cur rent coin of the realm. When the former • was tended for a smaller sum than; that which was demanded, it inferred, if ac cepted, a stipulation that it was full pay ment of the larger sum. Once taken, the acceptors could not afterwards say, " Oh, we took it on account." Business men, continued his Honor, ought to remember that, and the legal profession might also with ...
